US Navy warships just challenged China with a South China Sea sail-by operation. Beijing is furious
 
10:23
The US Navy sent two guided-missiIe destroyers to challenge China in the South China Sea, and Beijing is outraged. Two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers — the USS Spruance and the USS Preble — conducted a freedom-of-navigation operation on Monday, sailing within 12 nautical miles of Chinese outposts in the contested Spratly Islands. The purpose was "to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways," as well as to show that the US "will fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows," Cmdr. Clay Doss, a US Navy 7th Fleet spokesman, told CNN. Beijing sharply criticized the operation. A spokeswoman for the Chinese foreign ministry, Hua Chunying, accused the US of entering Chinese waters without permission and engaging in provocations that threaten China's sovereignty, the South China Morning Post reported.

China vs US: US Navy send warships into the South China Sea - tensions escalate
 
10:29
Pentagon officials said two guided-missiIe destroyers had travelled within 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef in the fiercely disputed Spratly Islands. The deployment is seen as the latest attempt by Washington to stand up to what it believes are attempts by Beijing to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters, where Chinese, Japanese and other Southeast Asian navies operate. China claims almost all of the South China Sea and frequently criticises the US and its allies over naval operations near Chinese-occupied islands. Britain today announced it was sending its new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth to the volatile region on its first operational mission. Beijing and Washington remain at loggerheads over US allegations for China’s militarization of the South China Sea by building military installations on artificial islands and reefs.

China Navy Shocked: US Destroyers Sail in The Disputed South China Sea as Trade Tensions Simmer

China Navy Shocked: US Destroyers Sail in The Disputed South China Sea as Trade Tensions Simmer The U.S. sent two warships close by islands claimed by Beijing in the disputed South China Sea on Monday, the U.S. Navy’s 7th Fleet said, as American negotiators arrived in the Chinese capital for talks aimed at resolving a trade spat between the two powers. A spokesman for the 7th Fleet told The Japan Times that the guided-missile destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble had “conducted freedom of navigation operations (FONOPS) in the South China Sea,” with the two vessels sailing “within 12 nautical miles” (22 km) of the Spratly Islands. The mission was conducted “in order to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law,” 7th Fleet spokesperson Lt. Joe Keiley said. While the 7th Fleet was not specific about what features the two destroyers had sailed near, Reuters, quoting an unidentified U.S. official, reported that they had passed by Mischief Reef, which is occupied by China but also claimed by Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines. Mischief Reef has undergone a massive land reclamation project and is home to a military-grade airfield. Recent reports have also said the islet has emplacements for mis-siles, extensive storage facilities and a range of installations that can track satellites, foreign military activity and communications. Beijing has constructed a series of military outposts throughout the waterway, which includes vital sea lanes through which about $3 trillion in global trade passes each year. The Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei have overlapping claims in the waters, where the U.S., Chinese, Japanese and some Southeast Asian navies also routinely operate. China says its facilities are for defensive purposes, but some experts say this is part of a concerted bid to cement de facto control of the waters. China’s Foreign Ministry reacted angrily to the latest FONOP, blasting the U.S. ships for entering what it called its “territorial seas … without permission.” Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said that the Chinese had side immediately identified the U.S. ships and warned them to leave, adding that China would continue to take necessary measures to safeguard itself. Meanwhile, the U.S. and China remain locked in a trade war, with the two sides attempting to reach a deal ahead of a March 1 deadline, when U.S. tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese imports are scheduled to increase to 25 percent from 10 percent. Preliminary discussions by lower-level U.S. negotiators were to be held in Beijing on Monday, before U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin step in for the main event on Thursday and Friday. Some observers say the ramped-up pace of U.S. FONOPs could be intended to heap pressure on Beijing amid the ongoing trade talks. The U.S. has denied this is the case. “We conduct routine and regular freedom of navigation operations, as we have done in the past and will continue to in the future,” the 7th Fleet’s Keiley said. “FONOPs are not about any one country, nor are they about making political statements.” He noted that U.S. forces operate in the Indo-Pacific region “on a daily basis,” including in the South China Sea, and that the United States “will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows. That is true in the South China Sea as in other places around the globe.” In mid-January, U.S. and British warships conducted military exercises in the South China Sea for the first time since China fortified its islands there. The U.S. has also ramped up its solo FONOPs, including an operation early last month that saw one of its destroyers pass near the Paracel Island chain, north of the Spratlys, in the South China Sea. Just a day after that operation, Chinese state-run media announced that Beijing’s so-called carrier killer anti-ship mis-sile had been deployed to the country’s northwest — a move that it appeared to link to missions in the South China Sea. The missile, known as the DF-26, reportedly has a range of 3,000-4,000 km, and the report alluded to the U.S. operations, quoting an unidentified expert as noting that it served as “a good reminder that China is capable of safeguarding its territory.” “Even when launched from deeper inland areas of China, the DF-26 has a range far-reaching enough to cover the South China Sea,” the expert said.

Here’s why Chinese activities in South China Sea could start World War 3
 
10:49
Here’s why Chinese activities in South China Sea could start World War 3 - China’s ongoing military buildup on islands in the South China Sea is akin to “preparing for World War III,” the chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee declared on Tuesday. The comment by Republican Sen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma came during a hearing to discuss the challenges posed by rising military powers China and Russia, a discussion that included ideas on how the people can better understand the threats to the world order that America built and has benefited from for decades. While the U.S. military has a presence in and around the South China Sea and the larger western Pacific Ocean, Inhofe said America largely watched China lay claim to its rocks and islets before turning other reefs into fortifications, brimming with arms and stockpiled with materiel. Beijing’s ongoing expansion into the Spratly archipelago agitates neighboring nations and continues to challenge international law, an assertiveness the U.S. Navy attempts to check through routine freedom of navigation operations, or FONOPs. A Chinese warship nearly rammed the guided-missile destroyer Decatur last fall near contested reefs that are occupied by Beijing’s troops but also claimed by Vietnam, Taiwan and the Philippines. “It’s like you’re preparing for World War III,” Inhofe said. “You’re talking to our allies over there and you wonder whose side they’re going to be on.” Subscribe Now : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0IlEuu4TA9wq1u60tLMqBw?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://facebook.com/USMilitaryNewsVideos Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/militaryvideos_ Twitter:
USS SPRUANCE & USS PREBLE MOVES TO SOUTH CHINA SEA FOR 'FREEDOM OF NAVIGATION' OPERATION
 
09:09
Two Arleigh Burke-class destroyers — the USS Spruance and the USS Preble — conducted a Freedom-of-Navigation operation on 11th Feb. They sailed within 12 nautical miles of Chinese occupied Spratly Islands. China claims almost all of the South China Sea and is trying to establish de facto control of the waters. It wants all ships & aircraft navigating in the area to identify itself to the Chinese Navy. Vietnam, Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei, and Taiwan also have claims on these waters but China has outmuscled them and set up military infrastructure in the many islands including the Spratly Islands. The South China Sea route is significant as about $5 trillion in trade and almost 50% world’s oil shipment passes through it each year. The waters are also thought to have 11 billion barrels of untapped oil and 190 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Countries like the US, Japan and India have no claims in the area and want ‘Freedom of Navigation’ as per international maritime laws. Cmdr. Clay Doss, a US Navy 7th Fleet spokesman, told CNN that the purpose was "to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as well as to show that the US will fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows” Viewers may note that the US conducts Freedom-of-Navigation regularly. As usual, Beijing has reacted to the operation sharp manner As reported by the South China Morning Post, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman, Hua Chunying, accused the US of entering Chinese waters without permission and engaging in provocations that threaten China's sovereignty, In this video, Defense Updates analyses why China should fear USS Spruance and USS Preble?

China WARNING: UK must act NOW to challenge Beijing’s domination of South China Sea
 
10:31
China WARNING: UK must act NOW to challenge Beijing’s domination of South China Sea - Beijing has staked “unlawful and excessive” claims over international waters in the highly contested region, revealing a “deeply worrying strategic intent”, experts from the Henry Jackson Society (HJS) think-tank said. Chinese forces have built and occupied a series of man-made islands, developing them into fortresses bristling with missile batteries, troop barracks and even airstrips. But despite being more than 6,000 miles away, the South China Sea is vital to Britain’s long-term interests, the HJS says, with £97billion worth of UK imports and exports passing through the region. And the best way to help maintain freedom of navigation for vessels in the area is to deploy Royal Navy warships - despite the risk of “inadvertent escalation” with Chinese vessels. Tensions in the South China Sea have escalated in recent years following Beijing’s unchecked expansion which has seen the Asian superpower transform dozens of reefs into heavily fortified outposts. In the disputed Spratly Islands, China has developed a trio of bases, dubbed the ‘Big Three’ by analysts. The islands and surrounding reefs are the subject of a bitter and long-running territorial dispute, with China, Malaysia, Taiwan, Vietnam and the Philippines all laying claim to parts of the archipelago. But China has seized control by militarising the region with its huge navy - tactics the HJS report warned show an “increasing willingness to challenge and act outside the rules-based system”. The study, entitled ‘The South China Sea: Why it matters to ‘Global Britain’’, says nearly 12 percent of the UK’s seaborne trade passes through the waterway every year. But Beijing’s claims pose a threat to continued freedom of navigation in the strategic waters, report authors Dr John Hemmings and James Rogers warned. China has previously demanded that US Navy ships in seas close to its bases immediately change course and leave Chinese territory. And just last month, an American warship challenged Beijing’s claims by conducting a ‘freedom of navigation operation’ close to the disputed Paracel Islands. However, these exercises run the risk of a miscalculation which could inadvertently spark a conflict. Last year, a Chinese Peoples Liberation Army Navy destroyer attempted to intercept a US Navy warship conducting a freedom of navigation operation in the Spratlys. The US said the Chinese vessel came within just 40 feet of the American warship, forcing it to manoeuvre to avoid a collision. But despite the risks, the HJS report says the UK should project its power into the South China Sea and uphold the law of the sea by carrying out its own freedom of navigation exercises in conjunction with allies. The authors conclude: “The South China Sea may seem like a distant geopolitical theatre to the UK and therefore largely peripheral to core British national interests. “However, nothing could be further from the truth: aside from its economic significance to British trade, which is considerable and growing, it marks a sort of litmus test for the durability of the rules-based system.” Subscribe Now : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0IlEuu4TA9wq1u60tLMqBw?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://facebook.com/USMilitaryNewsVideos Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/militaryvideos_ Twitter:

U.S. Warships Again Challenge Beijing's Claims in South China Sea
 
10:15
U.S. Warships Again Challenge Beijing's Claims in South China Sea The United States sailed two warships close to disputed islands in the South China Sea on Monday (Sunday night, ET), a move that is bound to draw the ire of Beijing. The guided-missile destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Spratly Islands as part of what the US Navy calls a "freedom of navigation operation." The operation was carried out "to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law," Cmdr. Clay Doss, a spokesman for the US Navy's 7th Fleet, told US Military News. "All operations are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows," Doss said, adding "that is true in the South China Sea as in other places around the globe." Monday's operation was the second in the South China Sea reported by the US Navy this year. In January, the destroyer USS McCampbell sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Paracel Islands. Shortly after that operation, China accused the US of trespassing in its territorial waters -- and said it had deployed missiles "capable of targeting medium and large ships." "The US action violated the Chinese laws and international laws, infringed China's sovereignty, damaged regional peace, security, and order," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at the time. "China will take necessary actions to protect state sovereignty." In late September, the USS Decatur also sailed within 12 nautical miles of Gaven and Johnson reefs in the Spratly Islands as part of a similar freedom of navigation operation. During that operation, a Chinese destroyer came within 45 yards of the US warship, forcing it to maneuver to avoid a collision. The US labeled the Chinese warship's actions unsafe and unprofessional, while Beijing said the US was threatening the safety and sovereignty of China. The US has accused Beijing of installing missiles and other military hardware on the disputed islands. "There's been sort of a steady increase," Adm. John Richardson, the US Chief of Naval Operations, told reporters earlier this month when asked about China's militarization of the area. "The weapons systems have been getting increasingly sophisticated so it's something we're watching very closely," he added. "We've got big interests there so we're going to remain there," he added, noting that about a third of the world's trade passed through those waters.

CHINESE ACTIVITIES IN SOUTH CHINA SEA COULD START A MAJOR CONFLICT
 
10:05
Republican Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma raised serious apprehension about Chinese activities in the South China Sea during a Senate hearing. Inhofe said, “It’s like you’re preparing for World War III. You’re talking to our allies over there and you wonder whose side they’re going to be on.” He stated that he was "concerned" that the message was not coming across, after China used a media blitz to present a host of illegal, artificial islands as "search and rescue centers". It is to be noted that last year Chinese state media circulated images of 2.8 km square island fortress for the first time after its completion. On 29th Jan this year, Beijing’s state run media mouthpiece Xinhua says China’s Ministry of Transport has officially opened a ‘maritime rescue center’ on Fiery Cross Reef. Xinhua quotes the ministry as saying. “The center will offer better support to maritime rescue operations in the southern part of the South China Sea,” As per the latest estimates, the Fiery Cross Reef is third largest of China’s artificial island fortresses having more than 100 building. The news article provided no explanation why gun and missile and hardened aircraft hangars were needed on an island meant for maritime rescue. As per Inhofe, the US sat back and watched as China staked its claim on the contested reefs. He emphasized that because the U.S did nothing, the islands are now equipped with weapons and fortifications.

Beijing Sent a Hundred Fleets of Ships to The Disputed South China Sea Island
 
10:52
Beijing Sent a Hundred Fleets of Ships to The Disputed South China Sea Island China has been accused of sending a fleet of almost 100 ships to hamper Philippine construction work on a disputed island in the South China Sea. Beijing started sending vessels to Thitu, part of the Spratly chain, according to the Asia Maritime Transparency Initiative (AMTI) run by the Washington-based Centre for Strategic and International Studies. The fleet of ships, dispatched from the nearby Subi Reef, includes vessels from the navy and coastguard along with dozens of fishing boats. The report said their presence was part of an effort to coerce the Philippines into stopping the work on the island, which China also claims as its own. Satellite images showed that a Chinese navy Jianghu V-class frigate and Zhaoduan-class coastguard cutter were off Thitu on December 20, when the number of Chinese vessels had peaked at 95. The report said the Chinese warship was just over seven nautical miles away from the Philippine navy’s frigate, the BRP Ramon Alcaraz, at the time. The Philippine government announced in April 2017 that it would start building a beaching ramp on Thitu, which is known as Pagasa in the Philippines and Zhongye island in Chinese. Once completed, the beaching ramp will allow Philippine ships to bring construction materials to repair and lengthen the runway on the island to accommodate larger aircraft. The work should have been finished by the end of last year, but Philippine officials said it had been delayed by inclement weather and rough seas. But the AMTI suggested that China’s activities had also contributed to the delay. The Philippine Defence Secretary Delfin Lorenzana told the Philippine Daily Inquirer on Monday that the ramp was now expected to be finished by the first quarter of this year. “The problem with Pagasa is that you have to bring in everything you need for its repair – steel bars, sand, gravel, heavy equipment,” Lorenzana said. “You need a beaching ramp to bring these in … So I believe it should be finished by the first quarter of this year, this beaching ramp.” Lorenzana also said his country should protest against Beijing’s decision to build a rescue centre on Fiery Cross Reef, a Chinese-occupied outpost in the Spratly chain that is also claimed by the Philippines and Vietnam. Citing satellite images, the AMTI said the number of Chinese ships in the area had risen to at least 24 on December 3, before the latest construction work began, and had risen to 95 on December 25. The number had dropped to 42 by January 26. Lorenzana said in November that China’s ambassador to the Philippines had previously urged him to cancel the planned work. But the drop in the number of Chinese vessels suggests “Chinese forces have settled into a pattern of monitoring and intimidation after their initial large deployment failed to convince Manila to halt construction”, the AMTI said. “But those plans continue to face delays and their scope is much more modest than those undertaken by China or even Vietnam,” the report said. Once completed, the Philippines will have reclaimed eight acres of land in the Spratlys in recent years, compared with about 120 acres by Vietnam and 3,200 by China, it added.

News Review - China says U.S. warships entered waters without Beijing’s permission
 
08:42
China’s foreign ministry strongly objects to the US after two American warships sail near disputed South China Sea islands. The Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson also said the US warships entered the waters without Beijing's permission. The Chinese navy later warned the US ship to leave the area. The US destroyers sailed near the Chinese Nansha Islands as part of what Washington calls freedom of navigation operations. Beijing says nearly all of the South China Sea is its territory, while Taiwan, the Philippines, Malaysia and Vietnam also claim it partly.

U.S. B-52 bombers fly over South China Sea, angering Beijing

美 B-52 전략폭격기, 또 남중국해 비행...中, 강력 반발 Two U.S. B-52 bombers flew over the South China Sea this week,... infuriating Beijing. The move came a couple of days before U.S. defense chief James Mattis and his Chinese counterpart met to discuss a number of issues,... including their disputes in the hotly-contested area. Lee Seung-jae reports. Two B-52 U.S. bombers ripped over the South China Sea on Tuesday,... a move many say was a power play,... signaling Washington's determination to continue to fly and sail wherever international law allows. The move also came ahead of a key meeting between the defense chiefs of the U.S. and China on Thursday. While the Pentagon did not specifically identify which islands the aircraft flew by,... open-source flight tracking data shows they may have been near the Spratly Islands. That's the location of a recent showdown between a U.S. warship and a Chinese destroyer,... as two vessels nearly collided. Following that incident,... U.S. Vice President Mike Pence warned that his country "will not stand down". Watchers says the flight was intended to send a message that the U.S. will not change its behavior in response to China's aggression at sea,... while Beijing described the flights as "provocative". China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Thursday that Beijing always respects and upholds the freedom of navigation and overflight enjoyed by other countries under international law. It added that it firmly opposes countries that act to undermine the sovereign and security interests of other countries and disrupt regional peace and stability under the pretext of 'freedom of navigation and overflight.' However, according to reports from the Associated Press,... the meeting between the defense chiefs was described as " straightforward and candid",... with Pentagon officials saying relations with the Chinese military may be stabilizing.

US navy plans major show of strength in South China Sea as warning to Beijing
 
10:37
US navy plans major show of strength in South China Sea as warning to Beijing The United States Pacific Fleet has drawn up a plan for a major show of force as a warning to China that will indicate its determination to counter Beijing’s military activity, it was reported on Thursday amid rising tension over the disputed South China Sea. The plan would see planes and ships passing close to Chinese-claimed waters in the South China Sea and Taiwan Strait in a freedom of navigation operation, CNN reported, citing several unnamed US defence officials. The proposal means US ships and aircraft will be operating close to Chinese forces and is expected to trigger a strong reaction from Beijing. China’s defence ministry did not immediately comment on the report, but a Chinese diplomatic observer said that by expanding its operations from the South China Sea to the Taiwan Strait the US was escalating the confrontation. The observer also predicted that China would step up its military presence in both areas. The proposal is being driven by the military but CNN noted that carrying it out it in early November when the US midterm elections are taking place could have political implications for the Trump administration if the US troops are challenged by China.

The World Is Waking Up to Beijing's South China Sea Ambitions

The World Is Waking Up to Beijing's South China Sea Ambitions SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- By Tuan N Pham, Yokosuka In recent weeks, there have been several commentaries reporting a temporary new norm in the South China Sea (SCS) – realpolitik’s triumph over moralpolitik and the rapid decline of regional U.S. soft power. But current developments suggest otherwise. Years of ill-advised U.S. acquiescence and accommodation (strategic patience and wishful thinking) in the SCS appear to be over for now. There indeed seems to be a new norm emerging in the SCS. But it is more reflective of the new muscular U.S. National Security Strategy and U.S. National Defense Strategy that call for an embrace of strategic great power competition with China than of a decline of U.S. influence in the region. Many countries are now firmly pushing back against Chinese unilateral expansionism in the SCS. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte reportedly declared that he was ready and willing to go to war with China over SCS resources. A prominent Taiwanese think tank has proposed leasing Taiwan-occupied Taiping Island to the U.S. military. And at the 2018 Shangri-La Dialogue, the United States, India, Vietnam, France and the United Kingdom all spoke strongly against China’s assertive and destabilizing actions in the SCS. These words are being backed up by actions. Washington disinvited Beijing to the 2018 Rim of the Pacific naval exercise on the grounds that Chinese actions in the SCS run counter to international norms and the pursuit of free and open seas. U.S. freedom of navigation operations (FONOPs) and presence operations in the SCS continue, and US defense officials are reportedly considering a more assertive program that could include longer patrols, more ships and closer surveillance of Chinese facilities.

US Navy again send two Warships to Challenge Beijing's claims in South China Sea
 
11:45
The United States sailed two warships close to disputed islands in the South China Sea on Monday (Sunday night, ET), a move that is bound to draw the ire of Beijing. The guided-missile destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Spratly Islands as part of what the US Navy calls a "freedom of navigation operation." The operation was carried out "to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law," Cmdr. Clay Doss, a spokesman for the US Navy's 7th Fleet, told CNN. "All operations are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows," Doss said, adding "that is true in the South China Sea as in other places around the globe." Monday's operation was the second in the South China Sea reported by the US Navy this year. In January, the destroyer USS McCampbell sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Paracel Islands. Shortly after that operation, China accused the US of trespassing in its territorial waters -- and said it had deployed missiles "capable of targeting medium and large ships." "The US action violated the Chinese laws and international laws, infringed China's sovereignty, damaged regional peace, security, and order," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Lu Kang said at the time. "China will take necessary actions to protect state sovereignty." In late September, the USS Decatur also sailed within 12 nautical miles of Gaven and Johnson reefs in the Spratly Islands as part of a similar freedom of navigation operation. During that operation, a Chinese destroyer came within 45 yards of the US warship, forcing it to maneuver to avoid a collision. The US labeled the Chinese warship's actions unsafe and unprofessional, while Beijing said the US was threatening the safety and sovereignty of China. The US has accused Beijing of installing missiles and other military hardware on the disputed islands. "There's been sort of a steady increase," Adm. John Richardson, the US Chief of Naval Operations, told reporters earlier this month when asked about China's militarization of the area. "The weapons systems have been getting increasingly sophisticated so it's something we're watching very closely," he added. "We've got big interests there so we're going to remain there," he added, noting that about a third of the world's trade passed through those waters. Thank you for watching.

Vietnam, Philippines Diverge on Beijing's South China Sea Plan SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Chinese Communist Party boasted of the new illegal facilities in their state media this week, a move the Philippine government did not deem enough of an official confirmation of the activity. China claims most of the South China Sea, including territory belonging to both of the countries mentioned as well as Brunei, Taiwan, Malaysia, and waters off the coast of Indonesia. It has developed advanced military facilities on artificial islands in the Spratly and Paracel Islands, which both Vietnam and the Philippines claim. China has also moved to ban Vietnamese fishermen from using Vietnamese sovereign waters for their trade and threatened Philippine ships in the area. When confronted about its illegal behavior in the region, the Chinese government typically claims to have “ancient” ties to the entire South China Sea, claims deemed illegal in a 2016 Permanent Court of Arbitration ruling. “The island construction by China is mainly for civilian purposes. It is reasonable and legitimate,” Defense Ministry spokesman Senior Col. Wu Qian argued in August. “It is a fact that the islands in the South China Sea have been the Chinese territory ever since the ancient times.” While much of the development – which China denies – is military, Chinese state media outlets reported this week that new weather stations in the region were officially functioning. The first reports on the facilities surfaced in the state-run Global Times newspaper a week ago. “Meteorological stations on Yongshu Reef, Zhubi Reef and Meiji Reef of the Nansha [Spratly] Islands in the South China Sea began operating on Wednesday to provide fishermen and nearby ships with accurate weather forecasts,” the Times reported. The facilities will reportedly offer “round-the-clock weather forecasts” to compliment the airports, lighthouses, and surveillance infrastructure constructed on the territory.

F-35 fighter jets are deployment to South China Sea
 
10:11
F-35 fighter jets are deployment to South China Sea - American Lockheed Martin F-35s will embed on the maiden mission of the U.K.'s HMS Queen Elizabeth to disputed waters in the South China Sea. At London's Royal United Services Institute think tank Monday, Defense Secretary Gavin Williamson announced the U.K.'s new carrier will be sent to the Mediterranean, Middle East and Pacific for its first operational mission after extensive tests with F-35s in the U.S. late last year. Williamson didn't give a time frame for the deployment, but the HMS Queen Elizabeth is expected to enter service by 2020. The so-called Big Lizzy's voyage will officially be a mixed U.K.-U.S. deployment. "Significantly British and American F-35s will be embedded in the carrier's air wing. Enhancing the reach and lethality of our forces and reinforcing the fact that United States remains the very closest of partners," Williamson said. Durning his speech, Williamson also highlighted the U.K.'s purchase of nine Boeing Poseidon P-8 Maritime Patrol Aircraft that will allow the U.K. to "patrol thousands of miles of ocean and greatly enhancing our anti-submarine and maritime capability." South China Sea A Big Stage For F-35s. The deployment of F-35s to the South China Sea comes as regional tensions have boosted demand for the stealth fighter. Japan recently added 100 jets to an earlier order for 42 F-35s, making the U.S. ally the biggest overseas buyer of the F-35 after the U.K. The inclusion of F-35B short-take off and vertical landing variants in the latest order plus Japan's decision to build a ship capable of launching them mean the country will be able to use the F-35Bs to project power beyond Japan's territorial waters. China and Japan are engaged in a separate dispute outside the South China Sea Meanwhile, South Korea is also buying F-35s amid growing concern over North Korea's nuclear and missile programs. South Korea also hosted a deployment of U.S. Marine Corps F-35s in 2017 for training exercises. The South China Sea deployment will be another high-profile opportunity to showcase the F-35's capabilities to U.S. allies and adversaries. Chinese Aggression In South China Sea. Beijing has been building artificial islands in the South China Sea and deploying weapons on them in recent years as part of its effort to claims the adjacent water, waters which contain key shipping routes and oil deposits. The U.S. and its allies have conducted so-called freedom of navigation patrols through the South China Sea despite Chinese warnings that they must first get permission from Beijing. Late Sunday night, the U.S. destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble sailed by the disputed Spratly Islands, according to CNN.

Beijing furious over US' South China Sea actions #Beijing #US #South #China #Sea #actions SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Chinese Foreign Ministry has urged the US to stop playing the South China Sea militarisation card, saying that the move is nothing more than a publicity stunt. When asked to comment on Washington's accusation that China is militarising the region, Hua Chunying, a ministry spokesperson, stated that China is justified in increasing its defence capabilities so close to home. Related Articles The US Air Force confirmed on Tuesday that two US B-52 bombers had flown over an area near the Nansha Islands, also known as the Spratly Islands, as part of an organised training mission. In response, Hua asked "is it an act of 'militarisation' to fly an offensive strategic weapon like the B-52 bomber over the South China Sea? Were the B-52 bombers there to safeguard navigation and overflight freedom?" She then warned the US that if it continued to stir up trouble, there would be a cost. Beijing was irritated by the US' recent dramatic increase in its military presence in the South China Sea, while France and Britain have also announced that they plan to deploy warships in the area to confront China. The Nansha Islands are a disputed group of Islands in the South China Sea. They are rich with natural resources and contain strategic shipping lanes. China, Taiwan, Malaysia, the Philippines and Vietnam all claim at least some sovereignty over the area. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

July, 2017 (By Wikimedia Commons) TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – U.S. Navy Destroyer, the USS McCampbell, conducted a freedom of Navigation operation (FONOP) in the South China Sea on Monday, Jan. 7, which quickly drew an angry response from Beijing. The USS McCampbell sailed within 12 nautical miles of the Paracel Islands, which are controlled by China, but also claimed by Vietnam, as well as Taiwan. Beijing immediately sent naval vessels and aircraft to identify and monitor the USS McCampbell. A U.S. Pacific Fleet spokesperson Lt. j.g. Rachel McMarr stated that, the FONOP was conducted “to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law,” reports USNI News. China’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson, Lu Kang, addressed the encounter during a press briefing later on Monday, stating that Beijing had “lodged stern representations” with Washington. “The US vessel violated Chinese laws and relevant international laws, infringed upon China’s sovereignty, and undermined peace, security and order of the relevant waters. The Chinese side firmly opposes the relevant action by the US side and urges the US to immediately stop such provocations. We will continue to take necessary measures to safeguard our national sovereignty and security.” The voyage of the USS McCampbell marks the first publicized FONOP operation of the U.S. in the South China Sea for 2019. In May 2018, the United States declared that it would begin to increase the frequency of FONOP operations in the South China Sea to “confront” China for actions that Washington deems to “be out of step with international law.” The announcement was made by then-Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, shortly after two U.S. Navy Destroyers, the USS Antietam and USS Higgins, carried out a FONOP near the Paracel Islands.

Fresh calls for Australia to challenge Beijing's South China Sea island claims

Fresh calls for Australia to challenge Beijing's South China Sea island claims SUBSCRIBE my channel here: https://goo.gl/F8gn4Z G+ here: https://goo.gl/UzMJVe ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Share on Facebook Share on twitter by Andrew Tillett Labor and a former senior defence official say Australia should consider co-ordinating efforts with like-minded allies to conduct freedom of navigation patrols contesting Chinese territorial claims in the South China Sea after Foreign Minister Julie Bishop ruled out doing unilateral exercises in her strongest language yet. Ms Bishop and Defence Minister Marise Payne overnight wrapped up their annual diplomatic and defence talks with US counterparts in San Francisco, with China's increasingly assertive behaviour one of the key topics of discussion. The US Navy under Donald Trump's administration has stepped up patrols in the South China Sea where ships sail within 12 nautical miles of artificial islands to signal the US does not recognise Beijing's claim to the disputed territories. American officials have been keen for several years for Canberra to carry out similar actions, with Mr Trump in February saying he would "love" Australia to participate in joint exercises. While Australian warships and surveillance aircraft transit the South China Sea in international waters and airspace and are challenged over their presence, they have steadfastly avoided passing within 12 nautical miles of a disputed territory. In comments to News Corporation, Ms Bishop rebuffed calls by a senior US congressman for Australia to do its own exercises contesting China's land grab that would probably further strain an already-tense relationship between Beijing and Canberra. Ms Bishop reportedly said it would be an "extraordinary step" for Australia to conduct a unilateral freedom of navigation patrol in the South China Sea because it has never conducted one before anywhere else. She said unlike Australia, the US conducted freedom of navigation operations, or FONOPs, 24/7 throughout the world.

US Destroyer Ship Sails 12 Miles Near Disputed South China Sea Islands in Challenge to Beijing
 
10:59
U.S. Destroyer Ship Sails 12 Miles Near Paracel Islands Disputed South China Sea Islands in Challenge to Beijing - A U.S. guided-missile destroyer USS McCampbell patrolled near the disputed Paracel Islands in the South China Sea on Monday, challenging Beijing’s maritime claims there, U.S. military officials said. The USS McCampbell conducted what the military calls a freedom of navigation operation in the Paracel Islands chain, sailing within 12 nautical miles of three islands: Tree, Lincoln and Woody, according to a Navy official. The ship patrol was meant to challenge excessive maritime claims by Beijing and to “preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law,” according to a statement from Lt. j.g. Rachel McMarr, a spokeswoman for U.S. Pacific Fleet. China sent a vessel to warn off the American ship and has lodged a complaint with the U.S., Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Monday at a regular press briefing in Beijing. Mr. Lu urged the U.S. to stop taking provocative action in the region and avoid disrupting trade talks under way in Beijing. “It is imperative for the two sides and I believe we have a responsibility to create an enabling atmosphere for these talks at this time,” he said. The Paracels are claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan but have been controlled by China since it seized them from Vietnamese forces in 1974. The U.S. Navy has conducted such patrols in the South China Sea for years but tensions with Beijing over the operations have escalated in recent years as China has sought to assert its extensive maritime claims in one of the world’s busiest waterways. The U.S. and its Asian allies and partners have been alarmed in particular by China’s construction of seven fortified artificial islands—including three with large airstrips—in the Spratly Islands chain. China’s claims in the Spratlys overlap with those of Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and the Philippines—a U.S. treaty ally. Beijing has also upgraded several military outposts in the Paracels and deployed jet fighters to at least one, according to satellite images and U.S. officials. The U.S. has responded by stepping up its patrols in the area—often sailing close to China’s new artificial islands—and encouraging allies to exercise their right to freedom of navigation in the area. China’s reclamation activities in the Paracels are less extensive than in the Spratlys and are considered by the U.S. and others as less threatening to the status quo in the region, but Beijing typically takes a dim view of Washington’s patrols through the area. China says it has “indisputable” sovereignty over all South China Sea islands and their adjacent waters, and has often accused the U.S. of destabilizing the region with its naval patrols. The USS Decatur conducted a patrol in the Spratlys in September, sailing past Gaven and Johnson reefs over the course of a 10-hour patrol and sailing within 12 nautical miles of both features. The two outposts have been fortified militarily and have reinforced fears among the U.S., Asian nations and others that China could use such islands to base ships, planes, weaponry and other material to enforce its claims across the South China Sea. “U.S. forces operate in the Indo-Pacific region on a daily basis, including in the South China Sea,” according to a statement from the U.S. Pacific Fleet. “All operations are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows. That is true in the South China Sea as in other places around the globe.” Last month, the McCampbell conducted a freedom of navigation operation against Russia in Peter the Great Bay in the Sea of Japan.

U.S. Navy's "freedom of navigation" operation near South China Sea draws ire from Beijing
 
02:01
미•중 무역분쟁 속 美함정 2척, '영유권 분쟁' 남중국해 항해 Two U.S. warships have sailed close to islands claimed by China in the disputed South China Sea - a move that could negatively impact on-going trade talks between the two nations. For more on this and other news around the world we turn to our Ro Aram… Aram… what's the latest? Well Mark… the USS Spruance and USS Preble conducted what the U.S. Navy called a freedom of navigation operation within 22 kilometers of the Spratly Islands on Monday. A spokesman for the 7th Fleet said the mission was conducted "in order to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law." Such exercises have often been carried out by the U.S. Navy and have been the cause diplomatic tensions between Washington and Beijing. China's foreign ministry issued an angry response. "Relevant activities of the U.S. warships violated China's sovereignty and damaged peace, security and good order in relevant waters. China expresses firm opposition and dissatisfaction to this." The spokesperson also demanded the U.S. stop what she called its "provocative actions," adding her country will take necessary actions to protect state sovereignty. Beijing's warning came as officials from both sides were in the Chinese capital for a new round of trade talks this week. It remains to be seen if Monday's operation will impact the negotiations. China claims most of the energy-rich South China Sea, as do several of its neighbors, including the Philippines, Vietnam, and Taiwan. China's claim was largely discredited by an international arbitration tribunal three years ago, but Beijing has rejected the ruling. The Chinese military has since bolstered its presence in the region, deploying military hardware and other defense systems.

Tension High China-US war tensions SKYROCKET after two navy warships target disputed Chinese islands
 
13:10
TWO American warships have approached disputed Chinese territory, in a move certain to trigger fury in Beijing. The guided-missile destroyers USS Spruance and USS Preble travelled within 12 nautical miles of Mischief Reef in the disputed Spratly Islands, which China claims ownership of. A US official said the warships had approached the islands on Monday to counter Chinese claims of domination over the entire South China Sea. Navy spokesman Commander Clay Doss told US media: "All operations are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows." It comes at a time of increasing tensions between the United States and China over an ongoing trade war. At the start of next month, US tariffs on $200billion (£155billion) worth of Chinese imports are set to more than double from 10% to 25%. Tensions between US President Donald Trump and China's leader Xi Jinping have escalated in recent months, costing both countries billions of dollars. Fears have grown that the trade dispute between the two countries is just one part of a broader collapse in relations between the two nuclear superpowers. Top US officials have attacked China for everything from human rights abuses to cyber espionage in America. The operation was the US's latest attempt to counter what it sees as China's mission to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters where Chinese, Japanese and Southeast Asian navies operated. Communist superpower China claims ownership over almost all of the South China Sea — frequently slamming the United States and its allies for naval operations in the territory. Washington has hit back in the past, claiming it is countering Beijing's militarisation of the South China Sea by building army installations on artificial reefs and islands. For its part, China has defended the construction of such centres as self-defence. It has claimed the US is responsible for ratcheting up war fears in the region by sending warships and military planes close to territory China believes it is entitled to.Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Taiwan, and Vietnam also have territorial claims in the region. The two countries are also at loggerheads over regional security, with the US offering support to the island nation of Taiwan, which China also claims as its own. Brit ministers have also claimed the UK should fight back more against China. Daily Star Online reported defence secretary Gavin Williamson saying Britain should use more hard power after Brexit.

US Navy sent a cruiser to challenge China in the South China Sea, and Beijing is not happy about it
 
10:41
The US Navy challenged China's claims to the South China Sea on Monday by sending a warship past a Chinese military outpost in the disputed waterway. The Ticonderoga-class "sailed near the Paracel Islands to challenge excessive maritime claims and preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law," Cmdr. Nathan Christensen, a spokesman for US Pacific Fleet, told CNN on Thursday in a statement that was also provided to Business Insider. A Chinese vessel reportedly shadowed the US Navy warship during the operation."US Forces operate in the Indo-Pacific region on a daily basis, including the South China Sea," Christensen added. "All operations are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail, and operate wherever international law allows."

Here's why so many nations want to control the South China Sea — and what China wants to do
 
01:59
The South China Sea plays an outsized role in international commerce and politics. A litany of regional and global powers crave its natural resources as well as the benefits that come with controlling on of the world's most important shipping lanes. China has aggressively pursued control over the Spratley Islands — an archipelago of rocks, reefs and cays that sit in the middle of the sea. Malaysia, Brunei, The Philippines, Vietnam and Taiwan have staked their own claims to the area, but it's really the United States Navy that stands in the way of China. The Seventh Fleet, however, cannot keep China from reclaiming land on the islands it controls. Professor Dave Denoon, director of the NYU Center on US-China Relations explains how the situation arose and how it will likely play out in upcoming years. -------------------------------------------------- Follow BI Video on Twitter: http://bit.ly/1oS68Zs Follow BI on Facebook: http://bit.ly/1W9Lk0n Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/ -------------------------------------------------- Business Insider is the fastest growing business news site in the US.
